1. Estragon Tapas 700 Harrison Ave , Boston, MA 02118

The South End is known for its quirky, trendy dining joints and Estragon Tapas fits the bill with the unlikely pairing of authentic Spanish tapas and an extensive wine list with the American diner appeal of its black and white tiled floor, vintage furnishings, and art deco decor. Choose from giant helpings of spiced paellas, vegetable small plates like Coles de Bruselas (roasted brussel sprouts with chorizo), fish options like Gambas al Ajillo (seared garlic shrimp), or land-born offerings like Pincho Moruno (pork skewers with a sesame miso dressing). Out of the Spanish wines, specialty cocktails, and 20 beers, the favorite is the tart and refreshing Tamarind Margarita that you can get by the glass or the pitcher. Pro tip: stop in Monday through Thursday for “Tapas Blitz” (small plates for $5 or less a piece).
